Wagner scores

From the Guardian, reporting on the European under-21 championship final
German teams do not throw away 2–0 leads and so it proved. Although England chiselled out a trio of openings, their opponents twisted the knife further on the counter with late goals from the centre-forward Sandro Wagner who, for much of the evening, had looked to lack the composure of his namesake.
That namesake being Wagner, Richard - the great composer with the great composure?!

A joke should not be assumed. England's sports writers are not given to levity when their team has just been whopped by the dread Germans, however inured to it they may have become.
